Re: facial and body hair
hi, i assume you have read some or most of this site? there are a lot of ways to 'get healthy', such as Liver Flushes
etc. i suffer from too much hair ;-), partly genetic, but also i think, due to the fact i smoke and drink often. this overloads the liver and may cause the excess facial hair i have developed, it is coarse and black, unlike the fine blonde hairs that are normally there. i pluck these hairs. takes time and hurts a bit, but what can a girl do?
try what one of the other poster's said - low carbohydrate diet. try to put as less strain as possible on your body's system so it can fix what may be 'other problems' or imbalances. and do try the kidney/liver clease etc. see if this slows the hair growth down, if so... this might be ur problem.
to control the hair growth, the best thing BY FAR!!! is not to shave. this makes the hair grow back thicker, coarser and often 2 or more hairs in each follicle, making the problem worse. your best bet is to wax and pluck, this makes the hair finer and weaker each time. it can be painful, but like someone else said, we should be so lucky that this is the only problem. think about it that way and try not to stress too much!! its not the end of the world, even though it may seem that way.
as for talking to your parents, do you have a good relationship? perhaps just get your courage together and say to whoever you feel most comfortable with - that you have something you'd like to talk about. that will get their attention and make the subject easier to start talking about. and hopefully they can help - even by making you feel better. good luck!!
